My impression has been that the Steelers do not pull $$$ from one segment of the team to sign a specific player on another unit (as opposed to such teams as the Colts, where the defense gets paid only after Peyton & Company finish eating).

If Taylor is to be re-signed I am afraid it will need to come out of the budget for the defense - even if Porter is let go I do not see a $10+ million signing bonus for a CB with one year as a starter, especially with Troy's contract coming up.

If the O-line budget is cut, it will be to start a savings account to re-sign Ben.
